Quantum Materials Begins Shipping Cadmium-Free Red and Green Quantum Dots

Company accelerates development to meet display manufacturer demand 

North American quantum dot manufacturer Quantum Materials Corp (QMC) has announced that it is now shipping cadmium-free red and green quantum dots in evaluation and production quantities to leading consumer electronics manufacturers.

The company has accelerated its cadmium-free quantum dot development because electronics manufacturers' are seeking to stay ahead of environmental regulations governing dangerous materials in consumer electronic devices. QMC says that limited industrial availability of a reliable supply of cadmium-free quantum dots has attracted the interest of the world's largest display and solid-state lighting manufacturers in evaluating QMC's mass-production capability. 

Meetings with manufacturers at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) spurred requests for cadmium-free red and green quantum dots with application-specific functionality, according to QMC's CEO Stephen Squires. "We were very encouraged with the results of our meetings at CES. I personally am even more pleased with the dedication, hard work and creativity of our team. Their discoveries have enabled us to meet the stringent demands and tight delivery deadlines necessary to rapidly integrate our materials into commercial products," he said.
